EA confirms Star Wars Battlefront, the third major release in the Star wars Battlefront series based on Star Wars franchise. Is it a sequel? No, it’s a possible reboot to the Star Wars Battlefront series.
The game is under development by EA DICE which is scheduled to be released on November 17, 2015 in North America and Brazil; November 19, 2015 in Australia and November 20, 2015 in Europe for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Here is a recap of the reveal trailer that was released by EA in April.
Star Wars Battlefront promises an immersive gameplay battling through the planets of Star Wars universe like the Hoth, Tatooine, Endor and the recent introduction of Sullust. The multiplayer gameplay trailer “Walker Assault” on Hoth released at EA press conference during E3 2015 revealed some of the epic scenarios from the battle of Hoth where players need to assist the AT-AT walkers in their struggle against the rebel army as well as some stunning airborne battle scenes between the squadrons of X-wings and TIE fighters in the skies. The online mode can support upto 40 players in one match including upto 12 maps.
Recently, EA has confirmed it’s beta release which will be open for all and the dates will be announced soon. The beta version will consist of two multiplayer modes along with one of the missions which could be played via co-op and split screen on console. PC users can play it via Origin while it will be simultaneously available for PS4 and Xbox One.
“What’s in it for you?”
- The beta version will include the newly revealed DropZone mode on the planet of Sullust where the Rebel and Empire teams will engage in a fight to control the dropping pods from the atmosphere. Also players can get to experience the survival mission mode playing either solo or co-op.
- HERO SYSTEM: Senior producer of Star Wars Battlefront Jamie Keen (in a post on EA’s website) has elaborated on the new Hero System which will allow players to take control of Iconic characters from the Star Wars film saga such Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, etc. and use some of the special abilities that these characters have such as Luke’s force push or augmented jump ability or saber rush. He also explained that the use of these heroes or villains will be limited to an average of 2 minutes per player because there health will be constantly decresing but this can extend by slaying enemies continuously. Theoretically, this can be done endlessly till the end of the match but won’t be possible in actual gameplay. More heroes will be revealed in coming weeks.
